THE LAMBERT COLLECTION 



INTRODUCTION 

The formation of collections of pictures by Americans of taste and judg- 
ment may be roughly divided into two jjeriods — the time when modern con- 
tinental artists were almost exclusively the vogue, and the time when the Old 
Masters of various countries became what may be described as the "ruling 
passion." Of the former })eri()d we have an ample and exhaustive survey in 
Edward Straiian's "Art Treasures in America," issued in three large vol- 
umes some thirty-six years ago. The taste in those bygone days was largely 
for pictures which told a story, something which the mind could grasp without 
any great effort. The wealthy American in those days was a man whose busi- 
ness occupations were so exacting and varied that he had little or no time for 
the leisurely tour in Europe where, and where only, he could study the great 
masters of other days. 

During the last thirty or forty years, collecting, so far as pictures are 
concerned, has become almost entirely revolutionized; the gods of former 
times have become displaced and other and totally different gods reign in 
their stead. This evolution is not peculiar to America, but it has been effected 
more rapidly and with more thoroughness there than would be possible in 
any European country. It is not that pictures by modern artists are not 
collected, or that, in the words of Tacitus, Vetera extollinius recentium in- 
curiosi, but that tastes have developed into other grooves ; and certain phases 
of pictorial art, once popular, have long ceased to attract. 

Picture collecting is of a progressive character, and but for the tastes 
of forty years ago there would be to-day but few collections of Old Masters 
in the United States. At some future time it will be interesting to inquire 
into the causes which brought about this revolution ; to the names of those 
who contributed to it, such as Mr. John G. Johnson, Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, 
Mr. P. A. B. Widcner and Mr. B. Altman must be added that of Mr. Cath- 
olina Lambert. All these men began to collect on the lines that were pop- 
ular at the time, but as their intimate acquaintanceship with the old masters 
grew, so their love for them increased. 

Mr. Lambert, who has been one of the most enterprising and energetic 
of American collectors for nearly half a century, has made a wise and 
admirable compromise between the old masters and the modern, by collecting 
and retaining such of the latter as have every promise of what may be 
termed permanency. The Old Masters can always take care of themselves, 
for they will always remain more or less unaffected by the changes in fashion 
and taste. Mr. Lambert has succeeded in getting together one of the largest 



collections now existing in private hands. In forming it he has relied largely 
upon his own judgment. This large and varied collection is now to be dis- 
persed; its many units will in the immediate future find new homes and help 
to adorn other collections, and the pleasure which they have given to the 
present owner will be transferred to others. 

No one, and least of all Mr. Lambert, will be disposed to insist that 
all these pictures are masterpieces. All collections, public as well as private, 
contain pictures which ai'e interesting rather than great ; and it is not always 
the important pictures which give the greatest pleasure to the owner. And 
it is the interesting pictures, perhaps, which constitute the backbone of 
the Lambert collection. There are, nevertheless, many of the first rank of 
importance, both among the Old IMasters and the modern. Special attention 
may be drawn to the Andrea del Sarto, to the Botticelli, to the Luini altar- 
piece, and to the Rembrandt portrait of a Rabbi. As in the case of so 
many other early pictures scarcely anything is known of the provenance 
of these pictures : the first three having been conveyed out of Italy into Eng- 
land without any flourish of trumpets. They were bought by Mr. Lambert 
on their artistic merits and are now oflfered for sale under the same con- 
ditions. The Rembrandt is an unquestionably fine picture, and the fact that 
another vei'sion of it exists in Berlin does not invalidate its authenticity. 

The quality of the early Spanish pictures is generally good, and among 
them are some important examples of the men who followed Velasquez and 
Murillo, such as Carreflo de Miranda, Coello and Pereda. The Dutch and 
Flemish portrait painters of the Seventeenth Century are represented by a 
number of first-rate examples in good condition. Particular attention may 
be directed to the Marc Geeraerts portrait of Lady Kenelm Digby, who sat 
to many painters for her portrait and whose intellectual gifts inspired so 
many of the poets and writers of her time ; to the Van dcr Heist portrait 
of a gentleman, the De Keyser group of the Parker family, to Micrevelt's 
])ortrait of Picter de Schilde, Councillor of Brabant, to Moreelse's portrait 
of another public official, the Sheriff of Dordrecht, and to Verspronck's por- 
trait of Mynheer Ten Eyck. In subject pictures, the same schools are also 
well represented — Van der Werff by a marvelous piece of flesh painting in 
"The Incredulity of St. Thomas," from the famous Hope of Deepdene Collec- 
tion ; Honthorst by an "Adoration of the Magi," with its curiously Flemish 
conception of Oriental life and costume ; the big Jordaens picture of "Daedalus 
Fastening the Wings on Icarus" — to select only a few of the works worthy 
of the attention of the amateur and others. 

The early English school forms a very important section of Mr. Lam- 
bert's collection. The pictures range from William Dobson, whose art greatly 
profited by his friendship with Van Dyck, down to Sir Thomas Lawrence 
and his friendly rival Sir William Beechey. In the interval we have — and 



hero again vvc can only iiunlioM a few willioiit pre jiidicc lo llic others — Wil- 
haiii Ilof^'arth's ni-oup of I he Price faimly; Thomas (iaiMshoroii<^li'.s |)orlraif of 
General .lolnison ; two pai'l icuhirl y fine Lawrenc-es, '"The Two Sisters" and 
"Mrs. In<>lis," as well as a most imixjsini^- and attractive group "At tlie Ojxn- 
ing of the (irate. Wm. Bennett and Richard Yeo may he specially mentioned 
among the Sir .Joshuas, whilst the line series of Kichard Wilsons and good 
examples of other and later I^iglish landscape and portrait painteis help us lo 
realize the greatness and excellence of iMiglish art from its origin down to the 
latter half of the last century. 

INIr. Lambert's pictures by modern artists are in a manner dominated 
by the splendid series of the works of Monticelli — by far the most important 
to come into the market for many years, and probably the finest group wliicli 
can occur during this and the next generation. As this feature is dealt with 
separately, it need not be enlarged upon here. Another striking feature is 
the large number of pictures by the American artist, Ralph Blakelock; among 
them a wonderful moonlight landscape of large size. Yet a third feature, liav- 
ing regard to number and quality, is seen in the many works of Georges Michel, 
the French artist who has depicted for us the Montmartre of Paris as it had 
been for centuries and as it was until the middle of the last century. The story 
of modern French art is brought up almost to our own day. Nearly all the 
Barbizon painters are represented, as well as the artists who rank with them 
and yet do not fall quite into the same group. The important picture of 
Gustave Courbet and the brilliant Diaz may be specially mentioned. Several 
large and important examples of Puvis de Chavannes and of the Russian 
artist Verestchagin are among the features of the collection — gallery pic- 
tures which should find permanent homes in some public institution. 

In no phase of modern art is the collection more remarkable than in 
that of the modern Impressionists — Monet, Renoir, Sisley and Pissarro are all 
represented by brilliant examples of their art done at their most spontaneous 
periods. The interest whicli Mr. Lambert took in American artists is also 
fully manifest, not alone in the Blakelock pictures already mentioned, but 
in the large number of works by the leading men in American art up to the 
end of the last century. 

It should be added, in conclusion, that, since comparatively few of the 
pictures have been exhibited either in Europe or in this country, so far as 
can be traced, and as the owner kept few notes of his numerous and varied 
purchases, many of the details have been furnished by Mr. Lambert from his 
retentive memory.

MONTIGELLI 



NOTES ON MONTIGHLLI 

Monticc'lli is one oi" the most trsif^'ic figures in Hie liistorv of iiiodcni art. 
As an artist and as a colorlst he is sui generis, a law unto InniscH', a prohicni 
and a pu/zlo to students and critics. With many friends and admirers, and 
with wealth and fame just within liis reach, Monticelh abandoned everything 
at the outbreak of the Franco-German War of 1870-71, and tramped back to 
his native city, where lie remained to the end of his life, painting pot-boilers 
to bring- liim in a crust of bread and a glass of absinthe. Other painters 
survived the shock of the war, but for ^lonticelli the sun went down, never 
to rise again. He would have had the first claim to a niche in Saintc-Beuve's 
j^roposed temple to the neglected and misunderstood, but the irony of fate 
and the mutability of fashion have transformed the neglect of a quarter of a 
century into a widespread appreciation, although his theories of art as exem- 
plified in his pictures are not yet clearly understood. 

The biographical details concerning Monticelli are exceedingly few. He 
was born at Marseilles in 1824 of Italian parentage, and "grandit solitaire et 
sauvage, en pleine nature, courant tete nue au soleil I'ete : dans la neige, en 
sabots." At about the age of sixteen he had attained to considerable efficiency 
in drawing, and at twenty-two he won the first prize at the Ecole des Beaux- 
Arts in Marseilles. He visited Paris in 184<7, remaining there a year studying 
in the museums and in the atelier of Paul Delaroche. For a year or more he 
traveled about France, and in 1856 he was once more in Paris, where he became 
acquainted with Diaz, and, through him, with other artists. His works never 
appealed to the public, but artists and amateurs admired his extraordinary 
talents. Napoleon HI paid 5,000 francs for one of his pictures (which was 
burnt in the Tuilcries), and the Empi'ess Eugenie had commissioned a series 
of large pictures (two of them are in Mr. Lambert's collection), and, but 
for the war, Monticelli, doubtless, would have taken his place among the great 
painters of the day. 

The outbreak of the war of 1870 sounded the death-knell of the artist's 
hopes and ambitions. He returned to Marseilles, where he led a precarious Bo- 
hemian and solitary life, parting with his paintings for the value of a few francs. 
The death of his mother in 1883 still further hastened his decline, but his pas- 
sion for bright colors survived to the last. There was no sale of "remain- 
ing works" or public dispersal of the elaborate and costly equipment of a 
fashionable painter's studio, to give Monticelli's name a new lease of life, for 
his atelier consisted of a bedroom with a bed, an easel and two chairs, and, 
above all, a large red silk curtain which was placed over the window and which 
served to bathe the whole room in purple. 



Roughly speaking, Monticelli's work may be grouped into three periods. 
The first of these includes his semi-allegorical groups of women, dressed in 
the fashion of the Second Empire, walking in parks, with ruins of aqueducts 
and other buildings. To his second period, that by which he is most generally 
known, belong the charming little pictures inspired by stories in the "Decam- 
eron," by the legend of Faust and Marguerite, little fetes-champetres remin- 
iscent of Watteau and Pater, romantic dells with statues and fountains, and 
peopled with ladies, gentlemen, horses and birds. In his third period may 
be classed provincial landscapes, marines and flower pieces. There is yet a 
fourth period into which fall his latest works, but in these the brain no longer 
guides the hand ; the color is as brilliant as ever, but the discordant notes, 
the amorphous masses of bright hues, all too cfi'ectively tell of the paralysis 
of mind and body. 

It is not in Monticelli that one seeks perspective of line or accurate 
draughtsmanship, any more than one goes to the novelist for strict historical 
accuracy. But like the novelist, he clothed the dry bones of fact with the 
brilliant and varied fancy of imagination. He is the Prospero of French art 
of the nineteenth century ; his brilliant chromatic effect, his "maids glim- 
meringly grouped" in their dazzling dresses, and his cavaliers in their mediaeval 
costumes, revealed a new beauty in art. 

As a silk manufacturer as well as a collector, Mr. Lambert from the 
first had a profound admiration for Monticelli and his brilliant color schemes. 
He knew the artist, and has formed what is probably the finest collection of 
his works in existence. He has twenty-nine examples which cover the three 
best periods of the artist's career. Dr. ]\Iireur of Marseilles had eighty-eight, 
and Monsieur Delas had sixty-nine, but both these collections were scattered 
fifteen years ago. Four of Mr. Lambert's pictures are superb and unrivaled. 
Two of these, which are among the largest which Monticelli ever painted, were 
commissions from the Empress Eugenie, and, but for the downfall of the 
Second Empire, would have adorned the boudoir of one of her majesty's 
residences. Two others are the luxuriant pictures — oblong in shape — which 
Mr. Lambert obtained direct from the artist. These four pictures more espe- 
cially represent Monticelli at the height of his remarkable powers of creative 
fancy, and are among the greatest pictures of the period. But examples of 
the other phases of Monticelli's art are in the sale — from flowers to portraits — 
and it cannot be doubted that when this wonderful series of pictures is placed 
on public view it will excite admiration for an artist whose genius has only been 
fully recognized within recent years.

\~THE CAVE OF EN DOR 



Before the battle, as we know, Saul went to consult the Witch of 
Endor. His mission was not without danger, as the village of Endor 
is on the north side of little Hernion, at the foot of which was the camp 
of the Philistines. Saul turned to the right, and so could reach Endor 
"in two hours time." The witch predicted to the King his defeat and 
death. "And to-morrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me" (said 
the spirit of Samuel to the King) ; "the Lord also shall deliver the host 
of Israel into the hands of the Philistines" (1 Sanmel xxviii., 19).

HH~THE PERSECUTION OF THE HUGUENOTS 



A GREAT assemblage of soldiers and civilians, among the latter a 
woman with a child clinging to her for protection, in a vast hangar 
the roof of which is supported by stone pillars. The central group is 
composed of the Catholic seigneur of the locality before whom the 
Huguenots are dragged for judgment, a suppliant, on his knees with 
back bared for the lash, and an officer of the soldiery who holds in his 
hand a rope, ending in a noose around the prisoner's neck. Excite- 
ment reigns among the people thus herded together at the command 
of the seigneur, and their vigorous efforts to shield themselves from 
the brutality of their captors is in strong contrast to the stern placid- 
ity of the judge and his entourage of officers and retainers who are 
grouped around him.

more synthetically. The greens in the foliage are relieved by the

by Greuze at the Salon of 1769, No. 160, with the title "La mort d'un Pere 
de famille regrette par ses enfants," described in Jean Martin's "Catalogue

and other flowering plants in pots. Over the low wall which encloses

\H6~THE MEETING OF SAINT GERMAIN AND 
SAINTE GENEVIEVE, IN HER CHILDHOOD, 
AT NANTERRE 

In the year 429 Saint Germain d'Auxerre and Saint Loup de Troyes, 
traveling to England to combat the heresies of Pelagius, arrive in the suburbs 
of Nanterre. In the crowd which has assembled at their approach Saint Ger- 
, main notices a child who, to his perception, bears the divine seal, and he pre- 

■ diets to her parents the lofty destiny to which she will be called. This child 

M was Sainte Genevieve, the patron saint of the city of Paris. 

The subject is depicted in three sections, forming one composition. 
The first shows, in the foreground, fishing boats with oarsmen and 
sailors drawing up at a landing place, and people carrying the body 
of a man out of a rustic dwelling. The second shows the holy men in 
the center of a group of people, with Saint Germain in the act of 
remarking the child, on whose head he places his right hand. The third 
depicts, as a balance to the first section, other people of the country- 
side engaged in their various domestic occupations. The entire com- 
position is enclosed by a border of bay leaves, with gilt monograms, 
S. G., and an inscription in French (a translation of which is given 
above) in the lower center of the second section. 

Height, 52 inches; length, 102 inches. 

Signed on the third section, and dated 1879. 

One of the most notable and representative works of the great French 
artist in existence outside of his mural paintings permanently incorporated 
in the decoration of great public buildings.

The interior of the Pearl Mosque at Agra. The niarhle columns 
and arches, beautiful in line and simplicity of design, form a sumptu- 
ous setting for two long lines of worshippers, in turbans and long 
gowns, at prayer. The greater number are clad in white, but here 
and there a figure in blue, green, yellow or other hues gives a valuable 
note of color. 

Canvas: Height, 58 inches; length, 78 i/nches. 

Exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery, London, 1887, No. 56a; and at the Ameri- 
can Art Galleries, New York, where the Verestchagin Collection was sold 
in 1891. 

The most famous, if not the greatest Russian artist, and the only one with 
a world-wide reputation. The son of a rich landowner, he studied at the St. 
Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts and gained a silver medal in 1862, and in 
Paris from 1864 under Gerome; exhibited at the Salon in 1866. After travel- 
ing in Turkestan, India, where he lived for two years, 1874-76, he again 
returned to Paris; visited India, Syria and Palestine in 1884, and China in 
1901. He held public exhibitions of his various series of pictures at different 
times in England, on the Continent of Europe and in the United States, where 
they attracted large numbers of visitors. Many examples of his work are in 
the Tretiakoff Museum at Moscow, and others are in private collections in 
Europe and America.

Canvas: Height, 371^ inches; width, 30 inches. 

This very fine portrait is a version of that in the Kaiser Friedrich 
Museum, Berlin, signed and dated 1645, described by Dr. Bode, No. 297, and 
illustrated in the "Klassiker der Kunst" volume on Rembrandt, p. 359. 

Note : This painting was purchased many years ago by Mr. Lambert 
from Messrs. Durand-Ruel as a work of the School of Rembrandt. Since 
then it has been seen by numerous connoisseurs and persons of authority who 
have judged the picture as being by the great master ajid many flattering 
offers for its purchase have been made. Very recently in cleaning the picture 
the signature and date have appeared. 

In view of these facts Mr. Lambert feels justified in accepting the picture 
as an example of Rembrandt, but he does not, however, desire to assume the 
position of an infallible expert, and therefore places the picture before the 
public for it to determine whether or not it is an example of the greatest of 
Dutch masters.

which is by Sir A. Van Dyck at Windsor Castle. Except that he studied 
under Lucas de Heere, little is known of Marc Geeraerts. Apart from the

32S— THE HOLY FAMILY 

A GROUP of five figures. The Virgin seated, in yellowish and scarlet 
robes, holding on her lap the nude Infant Christ, who is leaning for- 
ward and embracing the child St. John ; the latter is in pinkish dress 
m edged with white fur, and by his side is a cross with scroll inscribed 

Q "Ecce Agnus Dei"; to the left is a youthful figure (possibly intended 

to represent St. Joseph) in green robes with pearl and gold pendant 
of a winged angel-face; to right St. Elizabeth in scarlet and white 
robes, smiling at the two children. 

Panel: Height, 491/2 ifi'Ches; width, 38^/2 inches. 

This exceedingly important picture was acquired by the late Mr. Martin 
Colnaghi, who intended it for his private collection, which he bequeathed to the 
National Gallery, London, but he was prevailed upon by Mr. Lambert to sell 
it. The same model for the Virgin appears in the Budapest group, 1516, and 
the same model for the St. Elizabeth figures in the Holy Family at Munich, 
which dates from 1515-1516. The same St. John appears in several of Andrea 
del Sarto's pictures of the Holy Family. The smiling Child-Christ is char- 
acteristic of the Master.

Several portraits exist in English collections of this unfortunate lady, 
mostly by unidentified artists of foreign origin who were working in Eng- 
land during the Tudor and early Stuart periods. They differ considerably 
from one another. One of the earliest, which represents her at the age 
of thirteen, belongs to the Duke of Portland, and was formerly attributed 
to Zucchero, but that artist was not in England as late as 1589.

after a long study of the picture, is also of the opinion that the work is by 
Rembrandt.

SIR THOMAS LAWRENCE, RR^.A. 

English: 1769—1830 




368— ^T THE OPENING OF THE GATE 

A GROUP of three whole-length figures of young ladies in a richly 
wooded park. The eldest, to the right, in gold low dress with brown 
shawl, is leading a donkey, on which is seated the youngest of the 
party, in yellow dress and white lace collar; the second sister, to the 
left, in red low dress, is opening the rustic gate. 

Canvas: Height, 95 inches; width, 82 inches. 

Purchased in London from a picture-restorer who had it in his possession 
for twenty-five years and who obtained it from the family. It was then stated 
that tlie three young ladies were members of a now extinct branch of the 
Marquess of Londonderry family. 

This fine and imposing group has been accepted as by Sir Thomas Law- 
rence, and the fact that he painted a large number of the members of the 
Londonderry family lends color to that claim. But apart from the question 
of technique, the whole scheme of the group is not one that Lawrence would 
have adopted, whilst the unidealized figures are not painted in his manner. 
No trace has been found to substantiate the Lawrence attribution ; and it is 
quite certain that there would have been some record of a picture of this size 
and importance if Lawrence had painted it. The extreme probability is that 
it is the work of Lawrence's assistant, an extremely able portrait-painter, John 
Simpson, who exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1807 to 1843, who was 
for many years employed by Lawrence in painting the accessories of his pic- 
tures and in making copies, and whose work often comes so close to Lawrence's 
manner that it has frequently been mistaken for his.

The statue of Diana of Ephesus is said to have fallen from heaven.

ebony. There are eight or nine antique statues of Diana of Ephesus, all 
differing somewhat. The present version agrees with those in the Sciarra 
Collection and at the Earl of Pembroke's, Wilton House, England. These 
are respectively figured in La Chasse, "Romanum IMuseum," 1746, Vol. II, 
and in Michaelis, "Ancient Marbles in Great Britain," 1882.
